The importance of stepping outside your comfort zone

The importance of stepping outside your comfort zone.

The unknown is always magnified; stepping into the unknown breaks down these walls and opens the door to familiarity. You begin to build a resilience to your own fear. The habit of excellence is a virtue. By doing the things you fear most, subconsciously and with every breath, you configure a new found level of confidence. Lastly, you never know who you are going to meet. When you travel in the same circles, you are always going to see the same things. Venturing out of your comfort zone can mean excitement, adventure, and greater opportunity.




I wrote the above as a "Hoorah!" mantra I give to myself as I look in the mirror to get ready for my day. To be honest, every networking event I go to I still have to psyche myself up. I go knowing no one, in hopes to secure that one deal with a wink and a handshake. Sometimes my own insecurities get the best of me. If my inner thoughts and voice were broadcasted to the world it would be quite a different picture than the one that I portray. Inside my mind is like a floor of scattered legos with no interlocking pieces...

Most people drive right over it, not knowing that it is any different than regular pavement until their vehicle loses traction. IF you were to spot black ice, you would look for very shiny smooth sheets that look like wet, glossy, pavement. Whene…

Trinidad's Letter

Dear Son,
I know you may not know it, but one day this pain you will remember. It's hard for you to understand now but because of it you will be a better man. You will remember all the missed birthdays, all the missed Christmas mornings. You will remember the times you looked at the little boys in the park playing basketball with their dads. And because it hurts now it will propel you to be a good man. I see it in you now. How compassionate you are to others. How friendly you are and always wanting to make sure that everyone gets a turn. For you have known the struggle of life not being fair and in your own little world you try every day to make it better for the next person. Even though the person you have missed the most left you waiting and waiting and waiting. I've seen you process this struggle of balancing sadness and glee; of wanting to be angry and yet yearning so much for just a call. I've seen you shrug it off willing to accept the things you can not change and ye…
